These are quite the yummy little treat! The only problem I had was I kept waiting for the ingredients to "thicken" as stated in the directions. Mine never really thickened even after 15 minutes of simmering. It would coat the back of a spoon but I was expecting it to be more like a pudding consistency just before it sets. No worries, I poured it into the popsicle molds and they turned out great. Thx for sharing your recipe.
Delicious and so easy.
We loved these babies. Great chocolate flavors and such a refreshing treat when you want something quick when it's hot. I doubled the batch and made some up in ice cube trays too, so the kids could get them themselves and stick em in a bowl to have while watching TV. Thanks!
